This mintage level matches the last release featuring a Bighorn Sheep and is 5,000 less than the first three in the $100 for $100 series which depicted a Bald Eagle, Grizzly and Bison. All past issues sold out.

Struck in 99.99% pure silver to matte proof quality, each 2015 $100 Canadian Horse Silver Coin has a weight of 31.83 grams, a diameter of 40 mm and a serrated edge. With today’s London silver Fix price of $15.78 an ounce, these silver coins have a silver melt value of about that amount.

Like the past four coins, the reverse or tails side was designed by Claudio D’Angelo. Around the horse which is seen running along a Canadian landscape are inscriptions reading: ‘CANADA’, the year 2015, the coin’s face value of ‘100 DOLLARS’ and the D’Angelo’s initials of ‘CD’.

Obverses or heads side have Susan Blunt’s portrait of the Queen. Encircling inscriptions include ‘ELIZABETH II’ and ‘D.G. REGINA’.
